Pennsylvania Association of Colleges and Employers (PennACE)

JoAnne Day Student of the Year Award:

PennACE would like to recognize the achievements and contributions made by interns and co-op students enrolled at member institutions. Therefore, the JoAnne Day Students of the Year Awards were created, with four awards of $500 each, one in a technical field, one in a non-profit field (including government), one in a business field and one for a student enrolled in an associate degree program which are awarded each year.


To be eligible to apply for the Technical award, students must have completed an internship or co-op assignment in an engineering, computer science/information technology, or science area. Non-Profit award eligibility requires the student to have completed an internship or co-op assignment in an education, social sicence/service, humanities area (i.e., any area within the non-rofit or government sector). To be eligible for the Business award, students must have completed an internship or co-op assignment in a for-profit business (i.e., any area that does not fall in the Technical or Non-Profit category).
